AlarmForce Industries (TSX:AF) reports total revenues for the second quarter of $14.5 million up from $14.0 million over the same period in 2015, or growth of 3% (flat in constant currency). Recurring Monthly Revenue (RMR) of $4.5 million at the end of Q2 2016 was flat to both Q2 and Q4 of 2015. Gross profit totalled $9.9 million compared to $10.3 million or -4% over the same period in 2015. Net income grew 6% in the second quarter from the same period of 2015 to $1.8 million. These changes were driven by the decrease in selling and marketing expenses, partially offset by an increase in amortization and general and administrative expenses. Diluted earnings per share increased to $0.16 compared to $0.15 in the same period of 2015. Year to date revenues totalled $29 million (up 5%), gross profit totalled $20.1 million (down 3%), EBITDA grew to $8.6 million (up 1%), net income totalled $4.2 million (up 5%) and diluted earnings per share grew to $0.36, up from $0.34 for the same period in 2015. "During the second quarter we reduced marketing expenditures across our US footprint and in advance of our launch of third-party product planned for late summer," said Graham Badun, President and CEO of AlarmForce Industries Inc. "We are executing on our more focused strategy including enhancing our information technology infrastructure in preparation for our launch of new third-party products and our refreshed brand which will position the company well to take advantage of the opportunities in the home security and personal emergency response markets. The company continues to achieve increased take-rates amongst enhanced services and we are excited by the prospects for the company and the ability to enhance our value proposition to both new and existing customers." In the first six months of the year the Company returned $1.0 million to shareholders through dividends paid. About AlarmForce AlarmForce provides security alarm monitoring, personal emergency response monitoring, video surveillance and related services to residential and commercial subscribers throughout Canada and select markets in the United States. More information about the company's products and services can be found at alarmforce.com. Disclosure EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is a key measure used in the security industry to assist in understanding and comparing operating results and is often referred to by our competitors. Management views EBITDA as a measure to assess the operating performance of the Company. Yet, since it does not have any standardized meaning defined by IFRS, it may not be considered in isolation of IFRS measures such as net income/loss or cash flows, as a measure of liquidity. The Company, however, utilizes these measures in making operating decisions and assessing its performance. Management believes that it allows the Company to assess its ongoing business without the impact of depreciation or amortization expenses. Since EBITDA is not a defined term under IFRS, it is unlikely to be comparable to similar measure presented by other issuers. This document contains forward-looking statements which reflect management's current expectations about future events and financial and operating performance of the Company. Words such as "may", "will", "should", "could", "anticipate", "believe," "expect, "intend", "plan", "potential", "continue" and similar expressions have been used to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements contained in this document may include estimates, plans, expectations, opinions, forecasts, projections, guidance or other statements that are not statements of fact. These statements reflect management's current views with respect to future events or conditions, including prospective financial performance, financial position, and predictions of future actions, plans or strategies. Certain material factors and assumptions were applied in drawing our conclusions and making these forward looking statements. These statements reflect management's current views, beliefs and assumptions and are subject to certain inherent risks and uncertainties.

AlarmForce Industries: Over Two-Thirds of Canadians Believe Home Security Increases the Value of Their Home

Canadians say neighbourhood watch programs are effective, but only 22% rely on it

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - Almost 70% (69%) of Canadians find that home security systems add value to their homes according to an AlarmForce Industries ("AlarmForce") (TSX:AF) Spring Home Security Poll released today. The national poll also found that while most respondents find value in home security systems, close to 90% (89%) of respondents feel very safe in their own neighbourhoods. 23% of Canadians do not rely on home security at all. "We believe most Canadians have become accustomed to having a home security system," said Beth Robertson, VP Sales & Marketing, AlarmForce Industries. "With today's modern technologies having a home alarm/monitoring system is a forgone conclusion." The poll was conducted by Environics Research amongst 817 Canadians between March 28, 2016 - April 2, 2016 and is considered accurate /- 4% 19 out of 20. The poll also found that almost 40% of Canadians were unaware that having a home security system reduces their insurance rates, helping to offset their annual subscription cost while increasing their home safety. "In some cases, insurance companies will give you a discount of up to 20% on your annual premiums depending on the extensiveness of your home security package," said Anne Marie Thomas, Industry Expert, Kanetix.ca. Additionally, when adding value to your home a whopping 96% of Canadians are concerned about the safety of their home and neighbourhood when making this lifetime decision purchase. "When looking for any additional edge in increasing your home value having a home security system in place has increasingly become an expectation when purchasing a home," said Robertson. The poll showed that over 40% of homeowners looking to purchase a new home have a pre-installed home security system on their checklist. 76% of Canadians feel that their neighbours are paying attention and are typically very aware of unusual activities in their neighbourhood. However, when asked who is more likely to notice suspicious or unusual activities, such as an unfamiliar face or a parked vehicle, 75% of respondents felt that they are more likely to notice it versus their neighbour. Other Poll Highlights: • A number of Canadians rely on a loud/large dog (27%) or baseball bat/golf club (16%) to meet the challenges of break-ins.
• 82% feel that direct contact between the home alarm company and emergency services is important and a full 71% believe voice response by the security company is important if an incident is detected.
• 68% are in favour of being able to remotely arm/disarm their home security systems, monitor or control smarthome options such as door locks, smoke detectors, lighting, garage doors and cameras remotely from a computer or smartphone.
• 76% believe that a monitored alarm system is effective in improving safety and security of their homes. Helpful Tips to Protect Your Home

Install motion lights in areas that are hard to see by neighbours or the public. These lights will draw attention to anyone approaching your house at night.
Secure any windows and window air conditioner units, especially if they are on the first floor. An open window can be a fairly easy way for a burglar to get inside.
Put your street address on the back of your house so backyard neighbours know what to tell police if they see suspicious activity from the backyard.
Make sure any interior mirrors don't reflect your home alarm system through windows, doors, etc. This will prevent burglars from seeing if your alarm system is activated or not.

Here are the full details from the AlarmForce Home Security Poll.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of significant risks and uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results of AlarmForce to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements, and even if such actual results are realized or substantially realized, there can be no assurance that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on AlarmForce. Factors that would cause actual results or events to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to, the risks associated with how a court may rule, the possibility of settlement, the ability of the Company to successfully defend itself and further action taken by Hepburn that is outside of the Company's control. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as at the date on which it is made and, except as may be required by applicable securities laws, AlarmForce disclaims any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise. Although AlarmForce believes that the assumptions inherent in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and accordingly undue reliance should not be put on such statements due to the inherent uncertainty therein.
